I have battled my weight since I was at least 10 years old, always the athletic looking one. . sturdy and thick.  I have been as low as 148 and my current high of 223.  Over the past 25 years I have lost and gained at least 200lbs.  
My son is now 20 and not happy with his weight.  5 years ago we started on the youth medifast program and did great, he lost 60 I lost 40 not 5 years later I am up 60 and he is up 100 from our low point.  
So, over the summer we decided to look into weight loss surgery and are both going down the road of the gastric sleeve.. I don't want him to battle is 20's 30's and 40s like I have.  

My son had his surgery on 2/24/2021 and I am going on 3/17/2021.  
I am glad to do this with him and hope he has a better life for it... For me... I want to go into the the 2nd half of my life as healthy as possible.
Wish I luck.
